Just Me, Reading And Writing

Following the plot points toward a finished novel. There's still a long way to go yet, but it'll get there. :)

Following the plot points toward a finished novel. There’s still a long way to go yet, but it’ll get there. 🙂

I spent an entire hour in front of the computer for two days now, working on my book I Killed Them, Mama. Out of all that writing I am happy with a single page. One page! *grrr*  I will keep plugging away, but that was disappointing.

On this same note, as an incentive for more likes on my Facebook page I have decided (a while ago) to post a new excerpt there when we have reached 100 likes. So far it has not made much of a difference in things, but we will see what happens.

In other news on that book, I was reminded of the existence of that pretty flower called Digitalis. This could be the poison she uses to put her Father-in-Law out of his misery…maybe a mix of that and antifreeze? Or perhaps using Vitamin A overdose to get him to the doctor for a checkup, the digitalis to make his heart/blood pressure a little funky, then a good dose of antifreeze the day before his cardiogram?

Just thinking out loud here.  More research is definitely needed.

After several days of pointedly setting aside half an our to read it I have reached the 407th page of The Help (out of 522 pages).  It has picked up. I am now rather invested in what happens to Minny, and curious whether Hilly gets what seems to be coming to her. This could get interesting… 🙂

    I never thought of overdosing vitamins before. How brilliant!

      I mean… using an overdose of vitamins to poison someone just enough to get people to suspect a problem. Not overdosing them on purpose.

    I can’t remember the name of the show, but there was a British Cop program where this bunch of old detectives got hauled back from retirement to form a new investigative team. Their immediate superior was a blond lady, and she had a terrible time keeping track of them. lol
    Anyway, in one episode they discover that some guy has killed off a couple of his wives (and is working on another) by feeding them the livers of old dogs. They pretty much died of too much vitamin A for too long.
    It was a fun show, if you like crime drama and old guy jokes. I’ll have to see if it’s on Netflix or something.
